Among several of the strategies for success that will be examined at the annual Accessibility Action Group Seminar at London Book Fair this year, delegates will have the benefit of hearing from Alistair McNaught on the launch of the Aspire Project – a project that will give guidance on and eventually assess accessibility statements made by publishing companies and platform providers.
Aspire stands for: Accessibility Statements Promoting Improved Reading Experiences
By clarifying the benefits (and the barriers) in your accessibility statement organisations will:
- help customers/readers make best use of the potential accessibility features,
- reduce customers/reader frustration in trying to do access a functionality that you already know isn’t feasible.
- help distinguish your product from competitors who provide no information.
- identify future priorities for your product roadmap.
We very much look forward to the first results of this project and improvements in accessibility statements for all participants.
Further details regarding the project can be found at the Aspire website.
